Swiney/Swinney Marshall, Bedford, Giles UPDATE
Posted by: Barbara Collin Date: November 23, 2001 at 01:57:22
  of 496

Here is the latest. More coming in the near future, and there may be a bit of tweaking here and there, but if your Swiney ancestors were in Marshall County, TN in the 1800s and early 1900s, they almost certainly fit in here. William Swiney shows up in Giles county as early as 1822, then gradually works his way toward what will become Marshall County, and is swallowed up by the border changes. The same thing seems to happen with his children and grandchildren, as they end up in Bedford County.
Nancy and William were still in Marshall in 1870. After that, I don't have a clue, although Shelbyville may hold promise.
Any help at all filling in the gaps or adding branches to the tree would be greatly appreciated.
